Very sad to learn of the passing of Jocelyne Bourassa. Beyond her talent as a professional golfer, Jocelyne was a beautiful person who when she asked “How are you?” truly wanted to know.

Jocelyne Bourassa built the duMaurier Classic into a world-class @LPGA major event but didn’t stop there, she was most proud of expanding playing & professional development opportunities & experiences for Canadian female golf professionals, merci Jo-Jo you helped nurture so many!

I always enjoyed chatting with Jocelyne Bourassa and am so sad to hear of her passing.
If it was to promote golf she would give you all the time in the world. Winner of our @GJ_AC Dick Grimm Award in 2014. RIP pic.twitter.com/CphpNaaCe2

Canada’s golf fans have so many good memories to share of Jocelyne Bourassa. She was much more than a “golf great”. She was an extraordinary human being, a sports ambassador and an inspiring role model!!! May she rest in power. https://t.co/cBLsr3dz3U
